Subject RE: retag 3.2-rc3 as 3.2 ?

Sounds like a good plan.
IMHO, the list of stuff I think people would like to see such as Function 
support, Village replacement, and the like seem to add up to shooting 
for V4.0 and will require some amount of internals being changed around
with associated testing/bugs/problems.
Should 3.2 be branched into a maintenance only branch so that the head 
can be used for 4.0 development?
Oh, for the non-U.S. folks... Just a heads up that Thanksgiving holiday is 
this week, so the U.S. folks may not be paying as much attention to 
Torque as they should.. (like me 8).. off work for a week).  Happy
Thanksgiving to all regardless of location!

Subject: retag 3.2-rc3 as 3.2 ?


Since the release of 3.2-rc3, there have been some bugs reported.
Some of them cocern the support of Derby, and two problems with the
jdbc task.

However, in my opinion, none of these bugs are significant enough not to
release the 3.2-rc3 as the Torque 3.2 final release. The benefits of
removing these bugs do not outweigh the benefits of having a final
release, which are the following:
- we could start fixing bugs which would require changing the behaviour of
Torque in some ways, like the village-related bugs
- we could also start to have a go at new features such as supporting sql
functions or pluggable template extensions

And then, a certain frequency of small bugs will always appear, so it will
not be feasible to push out a release which is totally free of bugs.

With these things in mind, my plan is to call for a vote on retagging
3.2-rc3 as 3.2 in a few days if no significant bugs or obstacles are found
until then. So if you want to test the RC before this decision is made,
please do so now. Also, if you have any objections against this, we could
discuss that before making a decision.
